7 Loves for Saturday.

Saturday has always been my favorite day of the week. It's the only day of the week that gives me permission to do whatever I want. Decided then, that I want to share some of my loves with the world. Enjoy. ♥

1. Money origami. I still need a lot of practice, but I love giving these as little gifts, Friends and family are always happy to receive too. :)

2. Dr. Bronner's Peppermint soap. Makes for quite a tingly shower, and smells so delicious.

3. Vintage-themed mirrors by MyFavoriteMirror.Com
So cute, and every gal needs a little mirror for her purse.

4. Love these! Aromatherapy inhalers by EarthSolutions.Com
The perfect caffeine-free pick-me-up.

5. Absolutely ANYTHING created by designing genius, Alexander McQueen. He makes me sweat.

6. Thai Fresh Rolls. Could eat them every single day. Recipe here.

and. . .

7. We take many country drives in the summer time and this song is always part of the soundtrack for road music. . . See if you recognize any of the famous driving scenes in this awesome compilation.

Happy Saturday!

My Favorite Clothes--Day 3 of 7.

Okay, these are hands down my favorite jeans. When I found them they were DEADSTOCK with tags. They're 80's vintage Gitano high waisted jeans and they're super dark denim, after tons of washes too! To put the cherry on top of THAT, they're ridiculously comfortable, 100% cotton! I seriously wear these about 3 times a week! (you can even ask my friend Deargolden, because I think I was wearing them nearly every single time we've seen each other!)

The puff sleeve polka dot top isn't vintage, but I found it and fell in love immediately because it's so girly and I knew it would fit to a t!

Paired the outfit with a cute little shiny red bow belt I bought off of etsy from MySassyLassy and some strappy wedge heels I bought at the mall years ago.

Couldn't decide if the jeans looked better down or rolled up? hmmm...
There's a little bit of a rockabilly feel to this outfit and I LOVE IT!

Thanks again to my motivation team of @nodtomodvintage @DaisyToad and @afreshvintage for inspiring me to post outfits for seven straight days!! :) It's been very fun so far!


Shop Update this Weekend! Stay Tuned!

Here are just a few goodies coming to the shop this weekend! I'm crazy in love with these 70's spandex disco pants right now!! THE BEST bright ELECTRIC PURPLE color!

My heart melted when I found this Mint Green 50's day dress. Loveliest of the lovely!

Always a fan of polka dots!

Couldn't resist the color of this 80's chunky knit tunic top!

Hearts I certainly can't pass up, Valentine's day is my favorite holiday of the year!

This little 80's geometric black & white mini skirt shouts New Wave. Love it!

And last but not least I know this 70's calico mini is more for the fall season, but isn't it adorable?! Love it so much with those knee high boots!

Hope you enjoyed this tiny sneak peek of what's coming to the shop!
Stay tuned! I'll hopefully have all of these and MORE listed by Sunday!!

My Favorite Clothes -- Day 2 of 7

This is the 2nd Mexican dress from the package from my aunt. {Yesterday's blogpost} I love it! So colorful and pretty, and the softest comfortable cotton to boot. I feel like being home when I'm wearing this dress.

Paired it with my 60's metallic slides.

This is Grandma LoLa. I can only hope to be as kind and graceful as she ALWAYS was, not to mention a most AMAZING cook! Always encouraging, Grandma often complimented me on my style, as I did her. I hope she knew how much of an influence she had on me. :) Such a classic beauty she was!

More favorite clothes coming this week, every day. Thanks to my motivation team! :)

Wednesday Wishlist -- Gingham is not just for Picnics!

I *love* gingham for summertime clothes! Found these fun checkered-print beauties for today's Wednesday Wishlist from my fellow Etsy sellers! Lovely and so perfect for the weather of the season! I'm especially in love with that little dirndl dress & the black and white one with the ruffled eyelet lace on the bodice. HOW PRETTY!







Fantastic dresses, gals! :)

My Favorite Clothes -- Day 1 of 7

Earlier in the spring I received a package from my eldest Aunt with a beautifully written note inside. This aunt was a BOMBSHELL back in the 60's. Aware of my love for vintage clothing, she had sent me three dresses she used to wear. One was a 60's navy blue wet look mini dress, and the other two were Mexican dresses that my late Grandmother had bought for her long ago. The package had made me cry. . . I was very close to mi Abuelita and she was such a beautiful, classy, and stylish woman. (In fact, LoLa was her nickname, and the shop is named after her) ;)

Such a sweet and thoughful gesture of my aunt! I'm incredibly grateful. This aqua blue Mexican dress is one of those pieces of clothing I will ALWAYS hold on to! I've already worn it so many times.

It's gauze with lovely lace trim on the pockets and floral embroidery on the neckline and in front.

I love pairing it with a skinny belt and one of my favorite pairs of shoes at the moment. Gold metallic flats!

I want to post the other Mexican dress tomorrow. It will be very obvious during this week how much the Mexican & Spanish side of me has influenced my style! :)
